Jewell Colours – Friday Flowers

The deep regal purple and emerald-green of this flower got my attention straight away in the flower shop. The vibrant colours reminded me of a jewels and I knew I had the right vase for them. The Japanese Gentian is a very striking looking plant with purple flowers budding between the leaves and then springing from these long green stems.

Just two stems was enough to make a real show in this vintage vase, an old emerald and turquoise handblown glass vase I picked up at the local charity shop for £1, one of my best bargains ever.

The luscious greens shading into turquoise is so mesmerising and because of the age of the vase it reminded me of another heirloom piece, a neckless I got from my mother, one she wore in days gone by. The turquoise crystal necklace with the gold and green stone clasp is just so pretty and special to me.
